[I’m in an Atlanta hotel, waiting for breakfast and needing to re-arrange my notes for a legal ethics and technology seminar later this morning. No time before the knock on the door to get the Warm-up going, but at least I can add one of the several Comments of the Day stuck on the runway, just like my plane was last night in D.C….]
Carcarwhite takes another step in our ongoing exploration of the confusing “it’s sexual harassment if the woman doesn’t like the unrequested sexual advance, it’s not if she does,but if she changes her mind over tbe next several decades or so she can rewrite history and maybe wreck a career or reputation” standard that has been on vivid display since the unveiling of The Harvey Weinstein Ethics Train Wreck.
Here is her Comment of the Day on the post, NOW Monica Lewinsky Says She Was Abused And Sexually Harassed:
I’m horrified at many of my gender who are crying for equal rights and then act like little whiny babies.
We want equality but we can’t pay 15 a month for our own birth control. We want equal this and equal that then we use (some of us) the flavor of the week to plead our victim case. Hurting our fellow citizens male and female because of this.
I was kissed by Eddie Van Halen back stage in the 80’s, on the lips, a few times. He was tipsy and happy and took a selfie of us before seflies were selfies, and I’ve actually had friends on the Left tell me I should my story publicly. And they say I am ENABLING THIS BEHAVIOR by not going forward! This is laughable.
I was giddy, a fan, and I’m not going to embarrass myself or other women by jumping on this RIDICULOUS bandwagon.
I have hung out with enough famous people to know not only to women like getting the attention but I’ve seem them throw them elves at powerful men in every place the are. From pastors to actors, women want attention from successful men (sometimes) and to deny this is lying.
Yes, our interpretation often is dependent on the man doing the advances or even giving a complement. If we like him, “Yay!” if not, Look out! We now sadly have a movement capable of ruining the lives of perfectly normal people who had no ill intent.
#MeToo really is embarrassing. And it’s wrong.
